INBT Organizes Professional Development Seminar Series
Baltimore, MD | Posted on June 9th, 2007
Invention Protection & Licensing
Date: June 13, 2007
Subject: Intellectual Property
Presenter: Jane Kuhl
Abstract: This seminar will cover: how to properly document and report your inventions, the JHU IP policy, types of patents and licenses, negotiating licenses, typical licensing terms, patent infringement, and pursuing patent infringers. Federal regulations and JHU policies related to Hopkins inventions will be covered including how inventors can obtain rights to their inventions if they are interested in spinning-out their technology into a start-up company.
Bio: Jane Kuhl has a BS in Physics and an MS in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology and is currently the Director of Intellectual Property Programs for the Johns Hopkins Homewood Schools. She was Head of the Technology Transfer Office and Exhibits/Marketing groups of the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington DC for approximately 3 years. NRL is the Department of the Navy's corporate laboratory and has an annual research funding budget of approximately $1Billion. Before joining NRL, Jane spent more than 20 years at AT&T and its spin-offs, Lucent Technologies and Agere Systems.
Ethical Issues in Nanobiotechnology
Date(s): June 27, 2007 and July 25, 2007
Subject: Ethics in research & Case studies of biomedical ethics.
Presenter: Glenn Rahmoeller
Abstract: Ethics addresses the social concerns of technology. In this class we will learn (a) two important ethical theories and how to apply them, (b) what it means to be a professional, (c) what our professional obligations are to our employers and to society, (d) and how this all relates to our particular roles as engineers and scientists in the field of nanobiotechnology. We will discuss a specific application of nanotechnology to medicine and answer the following questions. What are the expected benefits of the technology? What are the possible risks? What are our obligations to educate society about this technology and to safeguard society from its potential harm?
Bio: Glenn Rahmoeller is a biomedical engineer with over 30 years of experience at the NIH, Director of Cardiovascular Devices at the FDA, and a consultant to the medical devices industry. He has been teaching applied ethics for university students and the medical devices industry since 1998. He is a senior lecturer in the Honors Program at the University of Maryland and a lecturer in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
Venture Capital in Nanobiotechnology
Date: July 10, 2007
Subject: Venture capital
Presenter: Justin Klein
Abstract: Through case studies we give an overview of the investment process, how you select companies/technologies, what you hope to get out of it, as well as insight into venture capitalism as a career path.
Bio: Justin Klein is a Senior Associate at New Enterprise Associates. He joined NEA's healthcare team in 2006 and focuses on medical device, biopharmaceutical, specialty pharmaceutical, and healthcare services company investments. He worked for the Duke University Health System, reporting directly to the CEO and the COO of Duke University Hospital on health system strategy, finance and clinical service unit operations. In addition, he has worked at Latham & Watkins LLP in Menlo Park, where he assisted life sciences companies on numerous licensing transactions, regulatory and corporate securities matters. Justin currently serves as a member of the Board of Trustees of Duke University, and has previously served on Duke University Medical Center's Institutional Review Board. Justin concurrently earned his MD from the Duke University School of Medicine and his JD from Harvard Law School. He received his AB in Economics and his BS in Biological Anthropology and Anatomy from Duke University.
